    OMG let's get this clear please -

    Black & Decker = I have not got a clue DIY'er.

    Ryiobi= For women.

    Bosch = Seen 'em in B&Q as a DIY'er and think it looks the business coz it's the right colour, I think.

    DW = Well its the first on the line for Pros until they realise they are owned by B&D.

    Makita = For Pro that have realised that DW is owned by B&D.

    Hilti = Now your talking, proper kit

    Festool = Ah I can see your a PROFESSIONAL.

    OK?

    The bosch 24v with the quick change chuck has been great for me . The Makita 12v range is pretty good , especially the little trim saw for cutting boards( depth stop to keep off the pipes).
    Have noticed though that the quality of some of my later Makita purchases haven't been as good as the earlier ones.

    Looking at a right angle drill , anyone recommend one?

    I can clearly see that you have never used Festool saws, I promise you they are truly awesome.

    ive had 24v bosch blue's since they came out... about 15 yrs IIRC, superb peices of kit, I've had about 4-5 now, then again I use them on a daily basis and got a habit of putting 1000mm x 22mm SDS bits throught granite and concrete with them. thats abuse.....
    wouldnt be without it. interchangable chuck mean you can buy normal auger bits a £3-£4 as opposed to SDS augers @ 10-12£

    Rabbit i agree the festool gear looks good. Thought of investing in the Ts 55 i think it was. With the slide rail and anti splinter to give a good edge.
    I had 12v Makita gear for light work and managed to get the 12v trim saw body for £30. I know its not as good as the festool , but haven't seen a small festool saw like the makita one.
    The saw has a 1mm kerf so makes a thin cut and little mess.
    Also , its tiny so you can get it into places other saws wont go.
    PS Thanks for your past posts Rabbit , Going fine now with NAPIT.
    Funny how a lot of posts here voicing unhappiness with NIC and none for Napit.

    Saying that Dewalt is Tat fullstop is pathetic. What are you basing this on? I am a supplier of Top brands across the contry and the majority of my customers all of which are trades people and proffesionals prefer Dewalt over anything!

    So bascially everyone on this particular forum seems to be a  tool snob with little true understanding of all the tools that make up a particular brand and are basically just going along with the same steotyping that all other forum uses come up with.

    Very dissapointing that poeple some of which are proffessionals are still generalising entire brands as ****! without stating the reason they think that tool is rubbish.

    At least they can read and aren't making a 'Tool' of themselves by replying to a thread that's over 4 years old! 

    DeWalt is still Chaved up Black & Decker ***** even 4 years on!

    I agree with you Rabbit Rabbit but would add one phrase to your Black and Decker comment. add " I've not got a clue" Professionals" (There's a lot of them about - if you lookk at new build houses for example).
